For a rich and exotic look in, Moroccan interior inspiration is an ever bountiful source. Geometric, tessellating patterns and intricate details are key to creating a Moroccan feel, which channels textures, colours and designs from a multitude of cultures, nations and religions. The exquisite variety found in Moroccan style allows it to be adapted to modern or traditional homes and brought to life anywhere in the home, from the bathroom to the balcony.
Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of Moroccan design is their use of geometrics in ceramics, woods, metals and brick work. These patterns are chiefly derived from the traditions of Islamic art, symbolic of the Islamic belief that all creation is harmoniously interrelated.
The Bright and the Bold
From the bright blue sky to the red city of Marrakesh, the turquoise waters of Casablanca to the rich, orange of the desert sands, Morocco is a country where you can find every colour under the sun. Being bold in your choices and mixing complementary colours that stand out will create a light, bright Moroccan inspired space. Alternatively, dusky oranges, browns and coppers can be used to great effect for a more muted scheme.
Morocco is a nation that is proud of its heritage and antiquity. By using more rustic antique-style finishes, you can pay homage to this in your own interior – even if it is brand new – an antique finish can make it feel as though it has been there for centuries. When Harrods asked Drummonds to supply showers and spouts for use in their Moroccan inspired Hammam spa, we created a rustic, bespoke antique finish to achieve this look. We now offer this across our full range of products so you can create this look in your own bathroom.
